PADI (Junior) Advanced Open Water Diver Course
Educate yourself and experience real adventures with the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course. During the PADI Open Water Diver course, you were focused on yourself. The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course now focuses on diving skills.
You do five dives, giving you the opportunity to try out some of the most educational and useful specialty activities in diving.
According to PADI standards, we MUST do the two mandatory dives U / W navigation and deep diving.
And then we have to make 3 optional dives that you can choose yourself, for example: night diving - boat diving - wreck diving - perfect buoyancy - search and recovery - nitrox - digital underwater photography and many more.
The skills learned make diving much more than just underwater sightseeing. In addition, the Advanced Open Water Diver course takes you one step closer to the Master Scuba Diver, the ultimate non-professional level of scuba diving.
Each Adventure Dive of the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course can be counted as the first dive of the respective PADI Specialty Diver course.
These dives make you more confident as you learn these basic skills and allow you to participate in many dives that an Open Water Diver is not yet allowed to participate in. Your instructor is always next to you.
This course is full of new adventures and will surely inspire you.
Prerequisite for taking this course:
Course material: Read PADI manual "Adventures in Diving", fill out the repetition questions for the 5 selected dives. Use of the U / W writing board.
Minimum age: 12 years with a (Junior) Open Water Diver certification or an equivalent certification from another diving training organization
Number of dives: 5 dives
EFR - Primary Care + Secondary Care
This course prepares you better for emergencies and also fulfills the requirements to participate in the PADI Rescue Diver course. As one of the leading international training organizations for CPR and first aid, Emergency First Response gives you the confidence you need to react correctly in medical emergencies, not only in the diving world, but also in your everyday life in the family, with friends, and neighbors and employees.
The Emergency First Response courses include:
- CPR for adults, children and babies
- First aid for adults, children and babies
- Proper handling of the oxygen device
- Training at the Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
- and much more.....
First aid is defined as the help we give someone until professional help arrives.
Again, it is true that although the course is based on a serious matter, we will definitely have fun.
But if you already have a first aid course such as from the Red Cross worker Samaritan Bund or Saint Johns Ambulance, then this can of course also be credited. However, the course must not be older than 2 years.
Prerequisite for taking this course:
Course material: Read the EFR manual "Primary and Secondary Care", fill out the repetition questions and watch the training DVD
Minimum age: none
Course duration: 1 day or 2 half days
PADI (Junior) Rescue Diver Kurs
In order to be able to take part in the rescue course, you must be able to demonstrate a first aid course which must not be older than 2 years and including CPR. If you don't have a first aid course, we can do this in-house. The rescue course again includes reading the manual (also applies to the first aid course) and filling in the Knowledge Review questions. After watching the Rescue DVD, you will start the practical part of the course.
The course includes the following 10 exercises plus 2 open water zenaria.
Exercise 1 - Fatigued diver on the surface
Exercise 2 - divers in panic on the surface
Exercise 3 - Action from land and / or from the boat
Exercise 4 - Stressed diver under water

Exercise 6 - Bringing an unconscious diver up to the surface
Exercise 7 - Unconscious diver on the surface
Exercise 8 - Exit with an unconscious diver / stretcher and exit types
Exercise 9 - First aid for pressure injuries and oxygen delivery

Open Water Scenario 1 - UW Search for a missing diver and bring it to the surface
Open Water Scenario 2 - Unconscious diver on the surface - Transport - Breathing - Laying down the equipment of the unconscious diver and himself - Bringing him ashore - Carrying out first aid on land.
Every skill is practiced and once you master it, a small scenario is made. This is demanding but you benefit enormously from it.
One of the most important points is to learn how to avoid accidents in the first place. And should something happen that you know what to do and how to do it correctly and not endangering yourself.
Although there is a serious cause on the bottom of this course, we always have a lot of fun as well during this course. After this course you will feel safer and you will make an even better diving partner.
4 to 5 half days are scheduled for the rescue course.
